Cancer affects all of us – our fathers, husbands, brothers, sons and friends too. 1 in 6 South African men will get cancer some time in their lifetimes and 1 in 26 men will be affected by prostate cancer*.
That’s why running the Daredevil Run is more than just about dashing semi-clothed through Friday traffic. It’s about showing solidarity against male-related cancers that affect so many men in South Africa each year.
If you’ve entered as a Daredevil, your entire entry fee will go to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). But if you’re not running – or even if you are – a donation is a great way of doing even more to help fight the cause.
Early detection saves lives. To help promote this, all donations received will go towards funding PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) testing and cancer awareness programmes in disadvantaged communities.
